Between the first edition and this 2012 rewrite their six-eyed supervisor model became the seven-eyed model and has now developed the seventh level to include elements of the previous six. It goes further to suggest an eighth, transpersonal, perspective that is contained within all of the previous levels. However evolution of their original teaching model is not all that has been added. The authors, now crediting Ryde and Wilmot as contributors, have included sections that incorporate a review of the literature and research to date, syntheses of other complimentary models and a review of the critiques that have been offered to their model.
If that all sounds a little academic they still pepper the book with well-chosen case examples which serve to bring alive the issues they describe, as well as providing solid checklists and guides to help think through practice issues such as contracting, learning styles, reflective cycles, and the very topical subject of e-supervision. The sections on supervision for groups and organisations have been expanded to include a greater awareness of team supervision, systems thinking, seeding of learning cultures and the use of appreciative enquiry to shift stuck pattens in organisations.
This is a rich resource that can be studied methodically or dipped into when the need arises. In my opinion their most significant contribution to the field maybe that of moving the poorly named concept of 'supervision' out of the limited domain of social workers and therapists into the rest of, as the title says, 'the helping professions' and, with this update, perhaps beyond. If you are interested in change culture you should get this..
Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer.
I don't say this is the perfect book on supervision. I say it is relevant, important, clear, and it treads lightly.
It is very readable as well, it flows, it comes from a wealth of experience and insight.
And it contains some very strong ahah! moments.
The book takes a neutral stance and suggests a number of different ways of thinking about supervision. It suggests a possible model but acknowledges that the supervisor should choose their approach.
There is a useful section on group supervision.
It is well written, accessible and I liked the fact that it contained a whole chapter on looking at difference and cultural contexts.
I would highly recommend it as it de-mystifies rather than obfuscates the issues.
